Orthopedic Billing Services
Custom-tailored to match your organization's unique needs.
Orthopedics is a complex specialty dealing with disorders and injuries of the musculoskeletal system. Achieving maximum reimbursement for orthopedic services requires a deep understanding of orthopedic procedures and corresponding terminology, CPT and ICD-11 codes, and modifiers. Due to complexities and frequent CPT changes, coding errors are common within this specialty and can lead to denied claims or reduced reimbursement.
Outsourcing orthopedic medical billing to Global Healthcare Resource removes the burden of accurately coding complex procedures. We have over 25 years of experience helping healthcare organizations in nearly every specialty streamline the billing process and obtain the highest reimbursement for their services.
Challenges in Orthopedic Billing and Coding
Common challenges in orthopedic billing and coding include:
- Unbundling errors: Unbundling is the act of coding for multiple components of a procedure separately when there's a single code available for the whole procedure. Unbundling can lead to denied claims or impact reimbursement.
- Inaccurate documentation: Orthopedic physicians and staff must clearly and accurately record the services provided and submit this information to insurers, along with supporting documentation, to prove medical necessity. Documentation errors can delay reimbursement.
- Assigning correct codes: Orthopedics encompasses a range of complex procedures and services. Coding and billing staff must thoroughly understand anatomy and procedural terminology to assign the correct codes.
